    Well, I did it! I just placed a tentative order with Meyer for my first chickies! I'm getting all bantams, 6 each of the White Wyandottes and Buff Brahmas, and 5 Araucanas. I'm hoping out of 17 straight run chicks I'll get 6 girls.

    THANK YOU BYC members for all of your help! My husband thinks I'm a little obsessed by this forum, but it has helped immensely as I've agonized over bantams vs. standards, which breeds, etc. I'm sure I'll need more advice once the little peeps arrive, and I'm so glad I know where to go to get it.
